That is certainly a plausible explanation, given the naval engagement occurred approximately 9 months after Division Cuba began their offensive.
I'm wondering if there may have been an oil tanker involved as well though - give the Mexicans AFVs and other supplies in exchange for oil which they'd supposedly "liberated" from Texas to be taken back for use in Korea perhaps. The oil actually being in Mexican hands may have been a lie though, in order to get their hands on badly needed supplies. Soviets might have been a little annoyed to be handed nothing more than a scrap of paper with IOU on it!
